Campground not too easy to find in the dark. In the middle of farms and greens. Just a small toilet building next to the river. No honesty box visible. No ranger to collect fees. Toilet facility old and rustic surrounded by high grass. Water out of the tap was brown (including a warning above to not drink it). River had brown water as well. Would not advise to go swimming here. It was ok for a free night!

Great campsite out in the sticks. We parked under the trees by the river. Toilet in a useable condition. No honesty box to be seen nor did a ranger come to collect payment.

Near to the river with trees, they give shade, places you can make a fire possible with views without being self contained.
